Connect to Collect
Just like WiFi, you can stay connected to the good God and collect (receive) His blessings. Now, the quality of time invested with God determines your strength in Him. Life is full of principles and likewise our walk with God.
However, the good bits of it is that we have the freewill to choose what and when to communicate with God. In fact, we all have the freewill to choose to either connect to God Almighty or to say no to his love. Recognising this fact, the onus is on you and I to stay connected to God at all times not only to collect from Him, but also to know Him more. Our Lord Jesus encouraged us to abide in Him.
Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. 5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. John 15:4-5
Addiction vs Connection
There is a correlation between addiction and connection. Let's quickly have a look at it:
How do you connect
1. Personal prayer
Prayer is communication with God. If you want to stay connected in God's plan, you need to speak to Him regularly. Don't be an acquaintance with God. Rather, make time for God to be His friends.
Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. 8 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. James 4:7-8
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: 7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. 1 Peters 5:6-7
3. Be part and serve in the church
Being a member of the church is interesting, but it gets better when you are responsible for a service in the church of God. Service is a sign of responsibility. Kingdom service develops capacity. Good news! Your service develops your capacity. The more you serve, the best you become in God.
Definitely, God will repay (reward) your efforts in the service of His kingdom.
God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them. Hebrews 6:10 NIV
....My Father will honor the one who serves me. John 12:26b
In summary, be conscious of the friends you keep. Don't become too close with unbelievers. Its a matter of time, they will pollute your walk with God and recline you to conform with the world. Always remember there's no vacuum in nature. It's either you are of God or of Satan. Thus, choose wisely!
5. Live above sin
Above all, let your private life delight God. Right in your bedroom all the way to outdoor places, always connect to God. Do not attempt to live double-faced lifestyle. God is watching us from birds eye view. No man can hide in His presence. Don't allow your connection to be shady.
In conclusion, its your choice to connect to God and collect (receive) from Him. And most importantly, our walk with God is more about the connection than collection. So, stay connected to and with God!
Have a blessed week.
